we used labor day to have a little family adventure. we headed over to Dahlonega, an old Georgia mining town. we stumbled across some sun dried georgia possum (seriously?) and 'coon skin hats. the town had a fun scarecrow contest (and we found a "bobot", luke's latest obsession). we let Luke pan for some gem stones, which he looooved. he was so careful; he didn't spill a single grain of sand. his concentrating face was hilarious. we topped off the evening at home, with the last s'mores of the summer.
